2023 is the year of the Rabbit, and it will be a lucky one! 

In Chinese culture, the Rabbit is the luckiest of the zodiac. So we all have something to look forward to!

For 2023, Chinese New Year falls on Sunday 22 of January, and there’s plenty of time for you to organise the tastiest gifts for your loved ones. At Tastebuds, we have the perfect gifts for the season. Today we’re going to go over some of the traditions and ways you can celebrate this incredible holiday.  

How do Australians celebrate Chinese New Year?

Chinese New Year is a tradition rich holiday many Australians choose to celebrate. But just like any special occasion, everyone has their own customs and traditions. A lot of families will gather together for a festive meal and bask in their loved ones' company. Most people will recognise these gatherings by exchanging red envelopes. 

While organising a festive dinner is one of the more common ways to spend Chinese New Year, there are many street festivals and markets that open throughout Australia. With vibrant displays of Chinese lanterns, fireworks and colourful costumes, there’s no better way to celebrate this happy occasion. See what activities are available where you live and make this Chinese New Year memorable. 

What do you include in a Chinese New Year hamper?

Giving gifts is a fantastic way to let your loved ones know you’re thinking of them during their Chinese New Year celebrations. Most Chinese New Year gift hampers come with a delicious selection of food items and, at Tastebuds, we have specially crafted a fantastic collection for you to choose from. Take a look at what options are available down below and surprise your loved ones with a hamper you know they will appreciate. 

Are there any traditions to follow when giving or receiving gifts for Chinese New Year? 

Chinese New Year is full of traditions, and you don’t want to leave a bad impression by forgetting some important rules. 

  1. Remove all price tags from your gifts. 
  2. When giving our gifts you should always start with the oldest member of the family. 
  3. Show respect by using two hands when giving or receiving gifts. 
  4. It is disrespectful to give worn, torn or old banknotes. Make sure any banknote you give is crisp and new. 
  5. Wait a little while to open your gift. It is disrespectful to open your gift immediately after receiving it. 

Keep these rules in mind as you prepare the best hampers for Chinese New Year and give your loved ones delightful gifts you know they will enjoy.
